    One thought on “Taliaschild (Beyond Fairytales series)”

    1. Taliaschild is the heartwarming story of Sonna, a poor girl, starving and living in dire circumstances, and Kira, princess of the throne of the realm of Heaven. The two girls meet once, which is when Kira gives the famous talisman to Sonna, and it takes another five years ere the talisman brings them together again, to fulfill an old prophecy.The two main characters, Sonna and Kira, are as different as can be. Sonna is poor, ever since her father died she virtually cares for herself, is determin [...]

    2. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which is a sequel to Taliasman. Another story based on a fairytale, this time the Snow Queen, with a hint of Disney’s Frozen.I thought the characters were excellent and I really liked Sonna, the street urchin. Kira was a bit of a spoilt brat but it was somewhat understandable.I could have done without the visual of two-day-old fish heads but it certainly makes one appreciate access to plentiful, tasty, fresh food.As is her wont, Ms. Vitsky likes to play with wor [...]

    3. Another thought provoking, wonderfully written book by Anastasia Vitsky! It came as no surprise that I was drawn in from page one and read it straight through. This is an adaptation of a fairy tale, a more grown up version let's say, and what a fun read! I could sympathize with Kira but it's Sonna who will surprise everyone with her courage when it's most needed. A fantastic book and I am, once again, in awe of Ms. Vitsky's abilities with the written word. Very nicely done!

    4. Another perfect gem from Ms. Vitsky, I devoured Taliaschild in one sitting.I'm finding that to be the norm when it comes to anything written by this author. Taliaschild is a sequel to Taliasman as we follow the journey of a magical Talisman originally handed down from Nicodemus to Vina, who places it around Talia's neck. You'll have to read Taliasman to find out what happens because I don't want to give anything away.Taliaschild begins six years later, when we meet Kira, daughter to Queen Vina a [...]

    5. Talischild would be worth reading for the Prologue alone, which is poetry masquerading as prose and which showcases the heights to which Anastasia Vitsky’s writing can soar. But the story is so much more than that. A sequal to Taliasman, Taliaschild give us Sonna and Kira, two young girls raised in surroundings that couldn’t be more different. Sonna is strong and resourceful, but living in terrible circumstances that make it nearly impossible for her to become who she could be. Kira lives a [...]

    6. To read the full in depth review click here: thriftshopromance.wordpress.cTaliaschild was an absolute pleasure to read. Even thought it is the second book in the storyline it developed its own unique charm, which prevented it from feeling like ‘just a sequel’. Even though it was an extremely character driven read, Taliaschild was able to develop a livelier and more adventurous feel than its predecessor which made me love it even more than the first book. The two lovely heroines of this story [...]

    7. The latest release by Anastasia Vitsky, Talia'sChild, is an interesting look into the life of Princess Kira and her unlikely relationship with a young poverty entrenched girl from the community named Sonna. Kira is spoiled but has a desire to be out in the world and not just constantly behind palace doors. Fate brings the two young girls together and their journey takes us on many twists and turns. Queen Vina fights to bring peace to the palace once again but Merda has other sinister plans for P [...]

    8. Absolutely loved it!Yes, this is another excellent fairytale by Anastasia. This time the story of two young women, Kira and Sonna. Two unique young women, two opposites, from completely different backgrounds. One lives in poverty and feels very unworthy. The other is a spoiled and stubborn one. At the beginning I had mix feelings for Kira but during the story I feel sympathy for her. Sonna however, is my favorite character. Strong, with a lot of willpower and courage. Her daily fight for surviva [...]

    9. A lovely sequel to Taliaman! This story would be a great read on its own, but I stopped reading a bit of the way through to re-read Taliasman. Kira had everything while Sonna had nothing, and the talisman brings them together. It's an adult fairy tale and takes you deep into a magical world of interaction between heaven and earth. Taliasman and Taliaschild are so different than all of the author's other works but still so true to her writing style of incredibly deep character development, emotio [...]

    10. This is an excellent sequel and I liked it even more than the first book, Taliasman. Taliaschild is a standalone story but it's helpful to read the first book.There's some allusion to Frozen here which the author notes prior to starting her story but the story feels original, overall.There's really great character building here and even the minor parts are given depth. The story flows and is completely engaging. Really well done and recommend.

    11. I really don't know what to make of this one. It was occasionally kind of confusing, I'm not sure where or when it's supposed to take place, and I could have used more at the ending. I liked the Taliasman a lot more, and I'm wondering if this one is just not for me. I'm not rating it because I seriously have no idea how many stars to give it.

    12. This was a great story. I did not want to put it down. As usual the author invites the reader to think through the story. It is a lovely story of learning what is important in life. It is a great interpretation of a well known fairytale.

    13. 3 Heart Review by KatI have struggled with this particular review. Although I did enjoy getting to revisit Vina and Talia, I believe that I was completely taken off guard by how spoiled their daughter Kira, future heir to the throne, was. Her complete lack of respect and her inexcusable behavior, at times, especially towards Azra was unexpected and appalling.I have come to realize that I am not a good reader of Fantasy. I am a realist, pure and simple, and have great difficulty in imaging fantas [...]

    14. Sonna having grown up poor, never having enough to eat. Being sent out to find food and when she didn't return home with any her mother beat her. Kira grew up having it all, a loving family, food when she wanted it, an education and clean clothes. When Kira meets Sonna on the street, she shows her a whole new way of life. Kira placing the talisman around Sonna's neck never thought it wouldn't be able to be removed.Great story, an adaptation of the Snow Queen. Kira isn't always the most likeable [...]

    15. There were some parts in the early sections of this book that left me feeling confused but I have since chalked that up to having not read Taliasman. Once I gained a grasp on the characters and their relationships to each other it flowed well and kept my interest. The twists and turns in the plot held my attention and the characters seemed well put together and properly developed. I fully intend to read Taliasman in the near future to give me a better understanding of this storyline and I would [...]
